Now and then we take a look into the not-too-distant future together, making predictions about what tech topics will be hot in six months.
These days, many topics are simmering -- the real-time web, tablet computers, Twitter, Android phones, Google Wave, Windows 7, Twitter, netbooks, an uptick in tech acquisitions, the semantic web, Twitter, the death of news -- but few are really hot.
Together, let's look ahead six months to April 2010 (doesn't 2010 sound far away?) and discuss:
* Will any of the topics I just named have a burst of energy and sizzle?
* How will the tech world change over the next six months?
* What's the change we can't see? the one that will blindside us?
